Additional Information

I am a board-certified psychiatrist with 26 years of experience treating adults and adolescents in hospital and office settings. I currently have a full-time practice, and I have taught for many years at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. After graduating from Harvard University with a degree in history, I worked for two years as a high-school teacher and then proceeded with my medical and psychiatric training in Denver. For 20 years, I have had a lot of fun teaching classes and seminars to doctors, medical students and counselors. Non-medical audiences say that my presentations are clear and engaging. I have experience doing record reviews, writing reports and giving depositions. Also, I have testified numerous times in hearings for involuntary treatment and disability determination. I am available to work on cases throughout the U.S.
